The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak has closed Indiana schools through May 1st, eliminating opportunities for in-school programming, field trips, and others arts education opportunities. This impromptu IndyArtsEd Forum is an opportunity for arts education personnel to share updates on how they're addressing the crisis, learn about resources to support teaching artists, and envision how we move forward.
This IndyArtsEd Forum will begin an in-depth exploration into technology, pedagogy, and policies within an e-learning environment. Three expert panelists will help provide a deeper understanding of all three themes from related but different perspectives: Eric Friedman (Kennedy Center), Clayton Taylor (WFYI), and Rain Wilson (IBE Performing Arts Academy).
